to the actual usage to bring it back in original condition. >> i just, i wanted to make sure that we have these number so that we explore what we are going on. and kind of the base line and figure would be as we look at that. >> i think that the important message for the public that we have had a lot of members of the public who have come forward with the ideas post the move by the warriors and do this and temporarily and make the money and all of this is come forward and to go back to do for a long period of time and as the engine reported, the comfort with the ability for the pier to sustain itself, uniformly for more than six months, it has not made it practical yet. >> okay. >> that is something to work with. >> yeah, i think that just so that we have the number that we have and this is something that we will be advocating because it was to be used entirely for

the open space and we do have the issue, and where will the money come from at least what would the cost be. and obviously, just to understand the context, for the $44 million. and the same thing, and scenario, to have that and in front of us. >> yeah. >> and i don't want to say what that number is because it is so mind bogling and because we are looking at those. and that is something that the public has asked for, that we don't have a park scenario, and not that we couldn't and if you consider that the two general obligations bonds and approximately, $35 million, and $33, $34, available for, and it will take more than that. >> and i don't doubt you, i just think. >> i know that. >> and so then that we know and we communicate as we look at the alternatives and the public can see that we agree with that. >> very well said, thank you.

1:40 pm
of grit british kingdom. we seek to promote and develop candlestick park for the future. it's still home to the oldest football association. the san francisco football league. many people also aren't aware that our parks capacity is shrinking and not growing for the current usage of facilities that we have within the city of san francisco. because of this, we seek a positive resolution for the redevelopment of the candlestick point hunters shipyard where we can seek new active development of the parks that are proposed to be put at the
1:41 pm
candlestick park area. with it we also seek to integrate our designs with linear corporation as linear being the agency to take on the current task at the shipyard and candlestick point. as we see it as a vital asset moving forward at candlestick, we do see it as an punctuate -- opportunity for the community to be act interview this development for the future plan moving forward. because of that i request new opportunity to bring before the commission at a future date to -- >> thank you. that's our time. we know where you are going with that. so thank you very much. >> okay. thank you. >> any other member of the public wish to speak on items not on our agenda? we'll close public comment.
1:42 pm
commissioners, that places you on department matters, item one, review events at the staff commission reports and announcements. >> planning commission is currently on break, so i don't have a report from recent hearings, but i did want to bring to your attention a memo prepared by tom desanto and martini in your correspondence folder at your chair. at your previous hearing you asked for clarification on the approved budget for the next two fiscal 2 fiscal years. i'm sorry i wasn't able to get this to you in advance. if you have any questions, i'm happy to entertain those questions at a future hearing. if you e-mail me, i'm happy to follow up with you. in summary i wanted to bring a couple things to your attention. on page 3 under new position, you will
1:43 pm
see item no. 1 that is related to reducing the backlog. we were granted one additional preservation position that would be a quadrant base preservation planner. the preservation planner that you had requested to work on landmark designations did not make it out of the mayor's office. so it did not end up in the budget. but they did grant us a position to deal with the backlog of permit ceqa related review and other preservation entitlement but at a quadrant level. on page four, beginning at the bottom of page four you will see the beginning of the year work program summary item no. 2 reflects that one additional staff member for quadrant base work and the summary on
1:44 pm
page 5 will give you a little bit more information about any additional items that were included on the budget that were granted. two things in particular that i think are important is one is we were granted the $100,000 to begin the citywide is survey scoping and planning process. so that's good news. and will be coming back to you hopefully before the end of the year with some more concrete details on our plan of attack for tackling the citywide is survey. as part of that we were also granted additional money related to a cog grant. we have a cog grant for this year for about $25,000 and also have a krog grant for next year for about $40,000. this grant money is used to prepare a neighborhood commercial district historic context statement
1:45 pm
and is survey of neighborhood commercial buildings. in particular mixed use corner buildings. the reason we picked this prototype is these are the buildings that are in that first tier of the size retro if it program. we are like ly to see a large volume of permits to upgrade these buildings in the near future and we wanted to make sure we have historic preservation in the future so when we are reviewing we don't delay those projects unnecessarily. with this funding we are able to expand this is survey and keep that is survey moving rather than waiting for the next fiscal year grant to come in. as part of the $100,000 citywide is survey, we are also under sway for this commercial is survey. we'll keep you updated on
1:46 pm
this is survey which we hope to bring to you for the upcoming adoption in the upcoming year. there is one error in the narrative that i wanted to point out to you in the last paragraph on page 5, in the middle of the paragraph there is a sentence referencing the preserve america grant. if you recall that grant expired a couple years ago. this is meant to refer to the cog grant that i just explained to you. so that krog grant will be available. so if you have any questions, or you would like to discuss this further at a future hearing, i would be happy to do that. i wanted to make sure you had this information at this hearing. that concludes my comments unless you have any questions. thank you. >> thank you, commissioners any questions for staff on this? >> seeing none, mr. frye, i
1:47 pm
do have questions but with landmarks, we'll take it up there. it's about conversations about how to move stuff forward by guaranteeing hours. we'll take it up under that item. seeing no other comments we'll move on. >> that places you on commissioner matters, item 2, announcements. >> i have no announcements. >> item 3. corrections on adoption to the minutes of the meeting . >> any correction? any member of the public wish to comment? seeing none. >> i move we adopt them. >> second. >> thank you. >> commissioners there is a motion and second to adopt the minutes for august 6, 2014. on that motion, commissioner highland,
1:48 pm
commissioner jong, john, matsuda, wilson, commissioner president haas. that motion passes 7-0. which places you on item 4. commission comments and questions. >> commissioner pearlman? >> i want to disclose the mayor's office called me about the 50 fell street project and i didn't talk to anybody. i did call nicole wheaton back and let her know that i knew they were interested in a project. also, this is actually a question for the city attorney. on the landmark's designation program, 199 carl street was nominated and i am the architect for that project. i understand this is an informational hearing on. i don't know if i have to recuse myself from that.
1:49 pm
>> andrea deputy city district. i think given that you have such a close relationship with the project it would be better if you recuse yourself from that particular discussion. >> okay. so there is two other items on that, so, i don't know if they are going to be taken sequentially then i can leave at that moment. okay. thank you. >> commissioner highland. >> i also did hear from the mayor's office. i did speak with nicole wheaton. second disclosure the preservation element is on the agenda again for the third time and the resources group prepared the draft. the contract is over. so i'm able to participate. >> commissioner wilson? >> i got a call from michael about indiana street. i didn't speak with him. >> commissioner jiang?

1:56 pm
i'm with bridge housing and it's a non-profit build housing developer. we've been in san francisco over 30 years and developed 14,000 affordable housing unit and we are in the pacific northwest now. rebuild potrero is hope sf to revitalize some of the most distressed homes in san francisco. there are hope sf now, rebuild potrero. the goal of sf is multiple. they really are not just about the physical redevelopment, but also about improving outcomes for existing families and creating thriving sustainable mixed income and the public housing itself but making sure we can leverage those changes
1:57 pm
in the surrounding neighborhood. hope sf began in 2007 under mayor newsom and all of the task force that was convened in 2007-08 that laid all the of the sites and the guiding principles. i listed here all eight. the most important once are the ones that stand out to ensure there is housing replacing of all the public housing and integrated economic communities income housing. maximizing new affordable housing and making sure the residents are involved in every step of the change process. >> so this photo here shows you an aerial view of the public housing site, both the terrace and the annex. this is facing north that it's on the southeast side of the city. you can also tell from this
1:58 pm
aerial that is very much detached from the natural street grid of san francisco. it made up of a bunch of diagonal streets and cul-de-sacs on the annex side. here are some examples of the existing buildings. most of them are 3 story barracks style in the 1940s and the annex built in 1955. the demographics now there are 606 residential units. 85 percent of them are occupied. what we know now is there are about 1300 residents on lease. what we suspect there is a third more about off lease closer to around 2,000 residents on-site. the ethnic breakdown is 60 percent african american, 20 percent
1:59 pm
latino, 10 percent asian pacific islander and mixed ethnic and white. it is also very young population. so close to 60 percent are under the age of 25. and 15 percent are between the age of 0-5 years old. the median income is $14,000. about 85 percent of adults are not working. the poverty rate in the terce annex is close to 65 percent. the neighborhood is very disconnected from any major supermarket. and sort of a startling statistic is 53 percent of the elementary school kids that are on-site are chronically absent which means they are missing more than 10 percent of the school hours in the year. it's been hard to get clear data but we imagine that it's about 60
2:00 pm
percent graduation rate varies between 55 percent and that is compared to 86 percent in san francisco. also as noted from the aerial, it's geographically and socially isolated from the rest of potrero hill particularly from the north side of the hill but the rest of the city in the region and the crime rate is five times the city average and every chronic illness. you'll -- so we were selected in 2008 as the developer for potrero and became a two 2-year master plan and process where we had tours and focus groups that created the overriding design principles for the master plan. it also helped establish clear goals for the master plan. an and all of been incorporated in th
